A highlight from Short Stuff: White Dog Poop
"Life sometimes has this way of blindsiding you at the worst possible time. Join host Nora McInerney on The Head Start, Embracing the Journey, a new podcast from iHeartRadio and AbbVie. She'll be swapping experiences, migraine coping strategies, and major wins with doctors, experts, and patients who are battling chronic migraine. Listen to The Head Start, Embracing the Journey on the iHeartRadio app, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you listen to podcasts. Hey, welcome to The Short Stuff. Josh, Chuck, Jerry, Dave, let's go. All right, this is our episode on dog beep. That's right. You can't say poop. Dog poop, white dog poop. Specifically white dog poop. The same white dog poop that Sarah Silverman sang about, same white dog poop that shows up in Step Brothers, which is probably the only reason why people who were born after the late 80s are aware that white dog poop even ever existed. I don't know the Sarah Silverman bit, and I've seen Step Brothers a bunch, and I don't remember the white dog poop in that one. Those neighborhood bullies, the kids, they make Will Ferrell touch his tongue to the white dog poop. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. And you know what? Until you sent this, I didn't notice that I don't notice white dog poop. Oh, really? I definitely did. It was a mainstay while we were growing up. Like, it was a thing. When you were walking down the sidewalk in your neighborhood and you just looked to your left in somebody's yard, there were piles of white dog poop, and you do not see that these days. I never thought about it until you sent this, and there is a reason why, and I thought the reason was gonna be as simple as people pick up their dog poop more than they did in the 80s. That is absolutely wrong. Yeah, it's calcium, right? Yeah, the diet of dogs changed dramatically in the late 80s, early 90s, and the thing that was giving these dogs white dog poop or making dogs poop white was an overabundance of calcium that was in standard dog food at the time. Yeah, dog food was pretty bad back then. There's still tons of bad dog food and pet food in general, but there's lots of really good stuff now. Back then, it was very much loaded with bone meal and some meat, but basically, it's that bone meal. Lots of calcium and bones, and calcium is good to dogs. A little bit of calcium is fine, but if you have too much of it, you can't absorb it. It comes out in your poop, and it doesn't come out white, but it dries up in the sun, and once the water is removed, it turns that chalky white. Yeah, I think IFL science compared it to when humans take vitamins, and we don't absorb all of it. It just comes out in our pee. Same thing with calcium in dogs' diets. After they have as much as they need, they just pass it in their poop, and then also, one of the other problems with dog food in the 60s, 70s, and 80s is that the way that the bones were rendered made it even harder to absorb, so a lot of that calcium, they might not have even been getting enough calcium from the food. They just weren't absorbing it. They were passing it. If the poop wasn't coming out white, which I can attest, I had a dog in the 80s.
Fresh update on "nora" discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"All right, Panthers, rest of the way, at Tampa this week, at the Saints, home Atlanta, home Green Bay, at Jacksonville, home Tampa. I need them to win one more game to have the Pats at least have a chance at the one pick here. It feels like the Bucks is, there's new coach theory in play. They have no reason to tank, right? There's a new coaching staff in place trying to impress Tepper. It feels like you'll get one more. I guess it would have to be one of the Tampa games, right? I think so, but I also think that's like a horrible matchup, like going against a Todd Bowles defense where he's just going to blitz the shit out of you and it's just going to bully you. So maybe it's the Saints, maybe it's like the Derek Carr, just God's word for you. The Saints or Falcons, I think it's those two games. And another element you're missing in the Bucks game is the Baker Mayfield revenge element, which can go either way. Either you get a Baker meltdown or he just goes off for like 400 yards. I didn't even know he was eligible. All right, Ruiz, you can read his QB rankings every week on theringer.com as well as his other features and listen to him on Ringer and Fell Show with Nora on, what is it, Sunday and Wednesday? Yep. Yeah, all right, good to see you. Thanks for having me.

Why all those math classes just to go shoot you can go. And building conductors hate pilots because pilots have all the knobs and dials and train conductors. Just have a lever. For what i have and every chain with someone a bus stop. Yeah and then. They have a big lever getting from toy story three or go or stop and the stop. It's not going to stop and time now on an doesn't matter how far you're gonna pull that lever and it's gonna be a lot of sparks and you're like why did they go to call all those science scores as you plow into whatever you thought the lever the from these lines so you're getting too many more.

Neighborhood Friends: A Story and Relaxation for Kids
"Our story today is neighborhood friends. It was a bright winter afternoon. Our island kelly had spent the morning playing with her toys in her new bedroom. Kelly's family had just moved to their new house on our island and most of the moving boxes were unpacked including the boxes of kelly's toys. This was the first time. Kelly had a chance to play with her toys and her new bedroom so she enjoyed letting her toys explore their new environment. She showed them the closet in her room and the window looked out to the backyard and the shelf or they could sleep at night. She wanted to make sure they would all be comfortable in their new home eventually. Kelly's parents called her out to the kitchen to eat lunch. Kelly carefully put her toys away on the shelf and headed to the kitchen. I kelly said june kelly's dad. Did you have fun playing in your new room. Yes daddy replied kelly. I showed my toys my new room. I think they like it. Did you put your toys away on their shelf before you came to lunch. Asked hailing. kelly's mom. Yes mommy i did. The toys are taking a nap now. Great said halie. As the family was finishing lunch. They heard the doorbell rate. I wonder who that could be said. Halie i'll go check. Haley went to the front door. She was gone a few moments and then came back smiling. Kelly someone's at the door for you. Kelly's eyes widened in surprise or me. She exclaimed curious.

"Nora watch on twitter. I'm just like what angry liberal have. I made even more pissed off because it was as though they sent their their whole activist team all the box that they buy a to my twitter house. Like wow there's a lot of people out here defending this policy and you want to know what the to number one defenses. Were you tag me on them. So i saw a lot of that but let the listeners know the listeners should know that the to number one defenses of this ridiculous policy is one. They told us it was going to be taxed. So so this wasn't a surprise which feels irrelevant and then to its income and all income is taxed Yes of course. This is why we can't have nice things. no no. this is why we can't have a good society. Sometimes people will fall all over themselves to to to justify bullshit. This is not a hard one folks like what in the world. Fuck this this. I can't believe you got ratios over that like that's like your biggest ratio in like i haven't seen again ratio. I didn't. I didn't get rich on this. I mean like no. You needed it. You have something like three hundred and fifty replies to something like one hundred and fifty re tweets. Oh is that how you do the ratio. I thought ahead to do with lakes as well. Well you have a lot of lakes. Yeah i mean it's not like the. It's only nura talks about hockey. Getting ratio level ratio. But you know it was. It was pretty intense. I was like i was surprised that the liberal twitter twitter brigade came after you so hard and i feel like we need to talk about here right like so. Let's talk about serb and let's talk about the fuck was that. Yeah yeah both of those things very important serve. The other thing. That i thought was really interesting. Is that some people started a tweeting at me. And deeming me about how you know canadians are so ungrateful and no americans were complaining about this. What the fuck i know. And it's like. I just want you all to know. The american stimulus checks are not taxed. Checks came the checks that came out and last year that they had to do through eae and the news stimulus checks. That are coming out. Now they're not taxed and so for those those of you. I hope none of our listeners of these people but for those people who live in canada who live their lives by comparison to the united states being better than the. Us like failed on that one. too yeah totally the serve. What the fuck. Okay like one. This is a government program. It's a government program that is paid for by our taxes so those people who are paying taxes on it have already paid taxes for this to exist. So that's one and yes. I do know that that exists already for like. Ei it's still dumb there to doesn't make sense for ei doesn't make sense for serb and other reason why it shit nora. We can go back and forth. Well it should because we're talking about a small amount of money like i. I'm really surprised that you could have enough money to be taxed only receiving the serb You know it's one thing to have a universal income that goes to literally everybody and have to tax that in a proportionate way to people's overall income but You know i. I only know what serb looked lake on..
Why Is It so Difficult To Ask For 'Big Help'?
"This topic wanna talk about this week. Asking for big help came as many things do from our facebook group. Facebook dot com slash groups slash. What fresh cast. Julie is one of our listeners. She asked when have you asked for big help lately. And what's the breaking point. I'd never heard this term. Big help before. I think she was making it up but i loved it. Because it's one of these things like we know what it is when we see it. Well what do you think it is. What is big helped me to you. Amy big help is. Can you fly across the country to help me right now because my spouse is in the hospital and my kid just broke his leg. Big help is Can you know me considerable amount of money right like big help. It's two o'clock in the morning. can you come to. My baby has a fever and can use it with the toddler. Yeah pick up a prescription on the way over. Yeah like shortlist. Big ask and i want to pick apart why. This is hard for us. Because everybody i think at some point if you're a parent is going to be on the asking side of big help. And on the receiving side of that ask and being on the receiving side kind of feels. Good most of the time and so. I don't know why we get so wrapped up on is this big enough. Is my need big enough. That i can ask that. It's much more painful to be the asker than i think it should be. And i think there are reasons for that. But i'm curious about that because having been on the receiving side of that two. Am call. you are happy to help you. Happy to be of help. So let's talk about. Why asking is hard. There's a book called may asking for help in times of need nora bouchard wrote that book and she suggests i like these couple of ideas that asking for help requires surrendering control. I think it means that this problem is bigger than i can handle. This is more than i could do. Right moms are supposed to be able to handle it. All juggle everything at once. Nope this is more than i can handle being perceived as needy yes. I don't know if that's what's holding me from like you know pressing call on my phone. Okay it's pride.

"Victor step out from the back of my mind. He just kind of emerged onto the page and that was actually really interesting in terrifying. Experience was as i was writing. Victor became a character. I didn't plan for him. I didn't expect him. He just started speaking to mary and talking to her about this conversation of is he creator or a she and and you know she just a conduit for his story or is she in control and So visually i wanted to present kind of this. The experience of a writer's journey of what it is to be consumed by one story to the point where it becomes alive and it becomes real around you and you know as my personal experience in writing the film. There were definitely times. Where i i would fall into the same madness. Mary's of what israel. What's not how how to shape the story around your own life and how your own life and fax it. Another thing that i really liked was as she's reading she's narrating passages from the book and adjust and stuff to slight like pros and and and alex just delivers it. So perfectly it it just it really again makes you appreciate the story more and really appreciate a talent. That really doesn't get her. Do thank you. That's exactly the purpose of making it to for us to re contextualised some of these words in some of these scenes and passengers from the story in see them. Maybe more through. Mary's is through the creatures is And yeah alex. What's wonderful about her. I don't know if it's well known. But she's voiceover artist as hard to know that google video games and so i think it was definitely. Her voice was a big inspiration for me. In a in a lot of those passages in allowing those to come alive and yet i would give her the notes of. Try to sound mike galadriel. That's that's what you're going for is galadriel lord of the rings. And so she put on her base best cate blanchett end and this beautiful deep resonating at passages would come out and i was pleased as punch. That's great that is great.

"She was just even better than i was hoping for and there was just no question about it. She was immediately be person that was going to be married. Having always gone into making the film knowing that marian whoever played her was going to have to be exceptional. It was actually really hard journey to find that person but once once we saw alex there is question about it. I tell you. I love the diversity in your casting. I'm one of these people that i really don't care who plays what part even what color. They are as long as they can. Do the job you know. And and certainly jillian. Who is so amazing. As percy it was and we didn't bother me at all. And i totally i. I love that relationship. When you writing you probably wanted to to to kind of be the center and also drives the engine little bit. Besides her Her unfortunate circumstances where their pregnancy. That relationship was kind of the crux of the of the story for sure. Because i think percy represents a lot to marry Ashes writing the story both in terms of her place in society in a real life as well as you know in reliance. Mary wrote she would talk about helpers. He was the inspiration for victor. So i think she saw in him a little bit of this kind of irresponsible scientists who really leads his ego and really wants to do these grand amazing things without thinking them through and so with finding juliana. I was really happy that i had actually worked with julian a few times before i might you when we went to school together. Yeah and and. But i had never even thought of him for this role in and he sent in a tape and i was just blown away because he brought this beautiful kind of innocence. And you to the role that i think is really Necessary and understanding percy in in understanding the entire group percy doesn't pretty important things not just in the film but like in reality and but for some reason mary still loves him. Mary was carrying his heart around her neck for the entire rest of her life. She adored this man. I wanted us to have somebody that we can see his flaws and we can understand that he is a very complex person but we also could understand where he's coming from so that we can still be empathetic with marian and her plight in trying to get his acceptance on his understanding. I think one of the things i really liked was since were watching it through. Mary's is how reality blended in with her imagination. And we saw that talk about that aspect of the of the film that way. I thought that work extremely well. Thank you that's one of my favorite parts you know. It's it kind of a combination of factors doing a lot of research. When i first started this and looking at kind of anything i could get my hands on. Mary's journals. mary's ladders percy's poetry. Irons poetry South and mary actually wrote a bunch of letters in which she was talking about this recurring nightmare that she had this nightmare of finding her dead child. Come back to life. She was really trying to understand how these visions were coming into our brain and how to use them into her story and it really resonated with me. Because as i was writing this film you know. I actually started. I sat down to write a bio pic justice. Straight like you know. Bbc very cut and dried jelly and mentor. Look the pages. And he goes you know nora.

I really like about this movie. It's easy just to say you know it's on shudder. And you're gonna say it's gonna. It's a horror movie not to me. I thought it was a total character piece. What led you into the direction to do. A movie about mary shelley. Thank you for noticing that out. That was absolutely unintentional for us as well and in talking the shudder i think they really want to expand the notion of what can be horror as well and so for me. It really was coming into reading the novel. I was actually. Let's see it was about eight years ago and i was trapped in my apartment during hurricane. Sandy in new york. And i had a copy of frankenstein and a couple candles. So i- creeping myself out. Jesus out of myself but actually i found there was a forward that married written as well as another one by historian afterwards kind of talking about it and in which mary kind of immortalizes this myth of the dark and stormy night with her percy byron. Them all coming up with these stories But the part that really caught my eye was the fact that she was talking about suffering from this late term miscarriage and in which he started talking also about the other losses that she has experienced with her children and that immediately opened my eyes into this idea of like wait so the story that is about creating life without birth. Is it's fire woman who could basically not give life to any of her children while own. My gosh do we not know that's what frankenstein's about how do we not know that context around it. Those questions really may incensed me. I really wanted to change that narrative and remind people that you can't remove. Mary and mary's be now motherhood experiences from the story of frankenstein. Films called a nightmare awakens. And it's just or wigs. i should say. And it's a. She is just terrific in his role. Alex how did you find alex. Because i thought gee totally killed it in the role. Thank you. I completely agree. I think she's marian it in some ways you know But i auditioned all of the different roles. Alex was sent me. I as a head shot. And i saw her picture and after having seen hundreds of other tapes at that point something about her just immediately clicked to me. I looked at her picture.

And it's just like we have to do something we have to do. Something one final very short story that we wanted to discuss tonight nora. How committed are you to the being our head of state. I think before you respond or just want to remind you that. There is still the death penalty in canada for troubling the queen. Do it's actually illegal. It's against the criminal code to to startle the queen. Yeah i think it's trouble maybe it starts at whatever fucking who cares. Point is how committed are you. How committed are you and will you put it on the record. If you go back into my into my history of me making. I put some very big startled is on the queen once and had some snakes fly in her face and it was like put a big line of just said illegal. So that's the only that. I think you know when we're we're talking to the origin of racist healthcare system. It's really hard to not think of how it really goes directly back to liz liz. I can call her. That's the kind of relationship you have with the with the monarchy go forward. I would have no problem with them. Like being nicholas tude. Oh my god Okay yeah great joke there and yeah i mean we just wanted to just give us just a couple of seconds. That's all this really deserves because this is really fucking obvious. Obviously why do we still have a monarchy. And i know all of these conversations have become really popular right now because some weird interview that i definitely totally watched order definitely probably didn't sure between oprah and some royals but like i mean let. Let's actually talk about it..

I know that is actually really amazing. no i got a quickie Measles shot this year because the lesson is a measles outbreak. I was like ooh that needs to be boosted. And so. I did that this year. Which i thought was a good idea during the cove and stuff but no no. No no no i don't i don't think i'm going to be vaccinated at any time at all soon. But that being said my city is booking people who are sixty years an agent older so you know. We are slowly backing up in the age categories. That's great because my city is so excited about all these vaccinations that we're opening up again tomorrow. And gyms are opening up tomorrow. And i just think that that's a bad idea and that i will vaccinated or not be stuck in this room forever and with that. Do we have anybody to think this week we do. I assume we have some social distance. Support coming from clare stephanie. In david michaela. lisa stephanie. And david thank you so much. And you know there is two seventies and david's pal. Folks that was not an error. Those were four people think. He's so much. For supporting the podcast into everybody who listens shares and donates regularly to us or irregularly like whatever. Thank you so much okay. We're going to talk about three things this week and The i is is more of an update than anything else. So we've got an update on bill. C seven yes. thursday night it passed. It passed the house of commons. It was it was my first time watching a vote in the hybrid has a comment. So i will say i mean this is all bad news but the only positive thing i will say about watching one of these votes is that i like the hybrid model. I like the idea that not everyone has to go to auto every single week. So that's kind of positive but let's talk a bill c seven so this was the bill that expands medical assistance in dying to people who have a health condition. That doesn't necessarily mean that death is foreseeable in the short term and they also expanded it to say that your condition can be just one condition and it can be a mental health condition and so now the legislation candidate allows someone to ask for medical systems and dying if they have a medical if they have a mental health crisis if they're in crisis If they are disabled if they have some sort of health issue that is causing them some sort of lack of quality of life and you know as we explained in an episode. A couple of weeks ago on bill c seven. All this does is..

It is still the anniversary very long anniversary for very long year. You're totally right. it's completely appropriate. Thank you never questioned me again. Let's see this episode goes. Did you get that vaccine yet. No so okay book. I made my appointment. I was supposed to get my vaccine tomorrow morning at eight. Forty five a m and Something happened this week. Where in california masses of people were were deregistered from from their appointments. And i i was one of them and i haven't been able to re book an appointment like the way that they're doing it as appointments are released. It seems like as you kinda have to check in the morning to see what's available and even though i'm in tier one as an education worker. When i go and i click to book my appointment. It says like you know only sixty five and older available or only janitorial staff available and the appointments that are the least available are the ones for education workers so they basically tiered the tier. And i'm not. I'm not on the priority list for the tier. So i'm going to try again this week. We'll see what happens and have a couple friends who are research assistants and ta's who have managed to get vaccinated so i'm just unlucky. It seems in having gotten re deregistered but I'll keep trying. It's going to happen soon. It will probably happen before the end of the month. And the good thing for me is if i hear. This is not happening in the same way in canada so apology everyone but the good thing for me is if if i am not able to put it on my own with with the state. Ucla will book it for me eventually. So i'm being over-cautious booking it on my own. Wow wow yeah. The only vaccine story that i have is that a family member call me on his way to getting his seen juice to make sure that he wasn't going to die from the vaccine. I was like you're not. You're not okay. You got your thirty on that. I am the authority on this so you went to j. school and you dropped out of j. school does that. Yeah yeah he. He knows that he really just trust me. So it was. It was quite nice call. And so you know dear listener if you have any fears about this vaccine still because there's a lot of stuff to be afraid of for sure in the world just know that i would give you the same advice. I would give my own family. Which is it safe..
The Weeknd Is Boycotting the Grammys
"Music's biggest stars, is boycotting this weekend's Grammy Awards. He's the artist behind one of the most listen to tunes ever spending 52 weeks in the top 10 of the billboard hot 100 lists. But the weekend is now saying Science Nora to Music's biggest night the best selling singer, announcing he intends to boycott all future Grammy ceremonies and will no longer permit his music to be considered for upcoming awards. This just months after the Grammys overlooked the Canadian artist completely shutting him out of all nominations following this snub the Grammy Award winning artist harshly criticizing the recording academy, calling them corrupt writing. You owe me my fans and the industry transparency. And the Grammy goes to critics have blessed the show before accusing the awards of being biased and out of touch. One of the things that has been very astonishing about all this is that three out of the last four Grammys have been racked by one scandal or another for the weekend, not to be nominated, either points to corruption or Severe dysfunction. Last year, former Recording Academy CEO Debra Dugan, ousted for alleged bullying filed a bombshell discrimination complaint against the recording academy, alleging the board manipulates the nominations process. I'm saying that the system should be transparent and that there are there are incidents of conflict of interest. That taints the results. Dugan also highlighting the longstanding struggle with gender inequality and lack of diversity when it comes to the most prestigious awards like album of the year. Saying those awards rarely go toe R and B stars like Beyonce or Kanye West. But instead, the winners tend to be in the rock, country and pop genres. But the weekends most recent statement taking it one step further, saying because of secret committees, I will no longer allow my label to submit my music to the Grammys. Something's wrong with that process. If an artist like the weekend can't even get nominated. It's something that needs to be fixed. The Super Bowl headliner is just the latest big name star to tune out the Grammys. Others include Drink, Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj. Now. In response to the weekend statement, Harvey Mason Jr. Interim president and CEO of the Recording Academy, told The New York Times We are all disappointed when anyone is upset. We are constantly evolving. And this year as in past years, we're going to take a hard look at how to improve our awards process, including the nomination review Committee.

Poly Styrene Documentary
"Today. Polystyrene i m cliche is directed by both her daughter. Celeste bell and documentary maker pulsing charting the rise of marian elliott as she was born. She saw yellow pages ad became polystyrene and formed punk band x ray specs as we know in this foam. Celeste goes through her mother's archive and visits. The places of hutch halted. So let's listen to the trader to get a feel for it. Some people think little go should have. But i think my mother was punk rock icon. People have asked me if she was a good mom. It's hard to know what to say your rebel. Today's society paulie had our own ideas. Student full fully trends. She was a woman of color in. Dc full of white middle class. men was singing. polly was singing about. I fell in love with her. I fell in. The news actually started singing. Because right we will dive right in nora snaps point. He was a big personality but as we see her life was extremely complicated on. This is as much. Her daughter's journey as police starring life story. Was that a good way in. I think definitely I think by this point. We also board like punk defecation. This point know the way. The bbc fool punk document generation. That watches him in the in the same way. That like my dad and grandad generation. What war documentaries old thing again and again and I think it's focus the that it's kind of deified in such a like i wasn't like incredible and radical umbro which it was in some ways but also rian just reinforced the status quo in other ways. Like the thing. I think is really great why i feel like the rohbock of this narrative restarted with like the vowel between book which From a couple of years ago when she you know really gets to the kind of watson order of it in a way that is much more punk than saying like. Oh we great you know like sex pistols type branding and i thought that this documentary was like a really peaceful continuation overseas. Not done by polystyrene by her daughter. And i think it's testament polystyrene like complexity and also to her sensitivity. But then i'll say for her callousness towards adulterer as well. I think it makes were much more well rounded portray of somebody and also no. It doesn't just a pain releasing on her. You know she has her own issues but it looks at how they're exacerbated by the society around like a mixed race woman in london at that time in the punk scene. There's a bit wet don. Let says that she goes and shaves her head while she's a party jordan lydon's house and when winter comes back down they just love her releasing. That seem horrendous. In retrospect i'm sure we're just kind of par for the course in in the seventy s and the other thing i was gonna say i think is important is she wasn't postponed. She was punk like she's really part of the the formative dna not very easily gets forgotten. Like when i was a teenager Bought three for twelve pounds. Buzzcocks clash kind of burundi's wound go from and see a whatever it was but it took a lot longer. It's come across x ray specs and to hear them kind of debt day fight in the way that they deserve She had a rough up. Brixton upbringing. shoes booted at school. Punk rock was a place for outsiders is the cliche but actually you see that. It's inevitable that she is going to get drawn to something that's so creative but also that she can break whatever more that she feels that she has been put into yet absolutely I think one thing that's really striking by the way that she Shared her images. While is the like. Obviously i don't want a undress will. The sex pistols did two like bridge society but fundamentally that kind of just like a boy band put together by iron. Witten really edgy branding. And that whole thing is is about dog individualism. When really it was really nothing the saw. And i think that you know. Even the police die polystyrene style for rewards more individual. She recognized herself as a cliche. And she played with the idea of like branding and identity in a way that i find much more interesting than just like sticking a safety pin on it And i think we have to use it. Today were authenticity. It comes from a very real place whether the sex pistols Taped on summertimes travis. The problems with poly seem to stem from x ray specs residency. Cbgb's in new york when they went over us punks hauled coal. There were a lot more into drugs. And i think that london it seems to say. Was this the breaking point for the band. Is this the kind of crux in the film. I think so. I mean i mean. That's the argument fuel. Makes the About what happened to the u k Members of the dolls came over an introduced heroin to the to the uk seen quite quite a heavy way otten Concur with everything that lord said about film. I think The framing the fact that it has selected celeste stories. Her as she's dealing with navas legacy in some respects her mother had had semi other people's expectations about what she should be being Star as in and being mixed race being hauled somali in britain and she's just so in the clips that they use the archive clips which from most of them from a a great arena documentary from nineteen seventy-nine he was she's just so alive him sparking intelligence on which me a very funny and in most What she's doing. I think you know how easy it is to get coal topping to the move Nexus these achieved up by the film. I descend Points about the breakdown. the failure in a way to work out. How will she is. She's diagnosed with schizophrenia. Kind of putting for bit. has serious by disorder Move into harry christmas On also in places you alluded to neglect which she treats celeste points during the spirit journey and was pursuing a common all and happened. How different thoughts regarding way with the male and female office Think about lockdown about. How much care women having to take on board and also agree with. I think that when another book that i would put in the frame is what is alvin. Is is kathy. Adams was drafted memoir of juden in other key. Figure the kind prison to look look upon pumpkin kind of liberating. It wasn't how you think about kind of male violence. Where is actually to the nearly point it was it was quite at transgressive sexually A lot of the gay pubs and clubs were up with the next to solve it. I'm so i can imagine that. The film doesn't does kind of raise interesting questions. As well as celeste father is interviewed in it on one of us and absent biggest because he died. regional manager. And pau falcons stewart. Now again. Severi seventeen seventy six. He was quite a bit older than when they get and how much care and they seem to hide it to a certain extent as well a friends didn't really know whether they were going out with each other or not. We just didn't look particularly cool Strangely enough this film from that era with hangs connor in it could breaking gloss than nyein and strangely seems to be almost so the police story in way which becomes this incredible figure And has sta machiavellian manage aaron and has this breakdown and so on so until daniels place. This full manager boyfriend Is i think it's really five documentary. Actually i think you mentioned he was a guest. Shot means the fact that one of zoe's earlier books whose how's your dad's some which is a an account to of stars children's. She's absolutely perfect for collaborator. On this end coming book as other as good as andrew. Did you like this a did. I really liked it because as as long as it's very fresh indifference it's a dream like quality. This is very much not your friday night documentary. Which begins with the stock footage of the miners. Strike rubbish piling in the winter of discontent. Yeah i've always about acronyms because hatches and didn't stop not your kind of off the pex tickets sold. It's it is a personal journey. It's quite slow and quite like i say quite dreamlike and which i found very refreshing change from the usual stakeouts poke documentary. I remember when i was a kid. I thought i thought police really disturbing because i lived in a very white suburban middle of nowhere type place and you just seems so odd and the fact that she but were shut brace on top of the pops and i now say that that is really good thing that it should be disturbed a little. You not white kids in places where i lived in in middle. middle class. spices. To encounter is person who didn't look like a boss didn't like pasta but was absolutely transfixed thing
Don't You Want Somebody to Take Care of You?
"Okay so you just got a couple of questions. We're going to get into that okay. Yeah totally i'm nora. Mcnerney in this is terrible. Thanks for asking. And that was gina and when we get into it. We're going to be continuing the conversation that we've been having about care with gina story is a story about a lot of complicated emotions about the long tail effects of being thrust into a caregiver role when you're still a person who needs a lot of care a child but this complicated story starts in a really simple place when genus parents met and fell in love They were summer fling. Was like maybe nineteen sixty nine thousand. Nine hundred seventy vietnam war was going on. I think there was like a lot of looking for a better life. Like you know like wanting something good and they dated over that summer and then they were married by like the day after christmas that same year. So my sense is that they were kind of idealists like they were looking for some sort of happily ever after and for awhile. Genus parents found it. My mom was a homemaker and my dad was kind of a rising star in the computer science world. he was an academic. He was teaching at georgia tech in atlanta. Which is where. I grew up and so early. Memories are that you know my mom cooked and was crafty and volunteered with the pta. My mom really loved to so she loved to bake. She's a beautiful woman and my dad was very intellectual. Like i remember him reading like not totally age appropriate books to read allison wonderland to me at an age when i didn't fully understand what's going on there so much in that book didn't understand but i loved the fact that he would read that to me and he would sit down and explain to me. How telephones work and he liked teaching me about prime numbers and stuff like that at a very young age i think he just really enjoyed sharing that aspect of himself with me. He liked kind of dissecting things and thinking about things and asking questions. And that's something that. I've carried with me into adulthood. He kind of taught me how to dig deep and think about stuff that you might not otherwise. Think about gina was the second of three children. Her older brother is named allan just like a sweet sweet kid like he loved playing with matchbox cars and he would line them up. We would watch movies a lot together like he loved watching lassie and old yeller and stuff like that. If it involves a kid in a dog he could watch a movie. Five times in a row of my mom lead up every single time. He said he would laugh at every part like it was the first time you ever heard it or ever saw it and same with music. You know at some point in our childhood somebody gave them like one of those yellow sony walkman and a bunch of tapes and he would walk around the house with like headphones on and plane his tapes and singing and his very loud very slurred speech. That was like the happiest. Alan loved country music bing crosby. He loved christmas music all year round. It was just gina in allen until their little brother andrew was born. Andrew came along and i felt like almost like he was my baby from the beginning and like i think i recognized from a young age that he was like my ally and my playmates. He was you know a playmate that i interacted with. He was very imaginative. And we do the things that kids do where you like lineup. All your stuffed animals and teach them school or we would do these toy. Parades down the hallway and like throughout the whole house. Where readers just like lineup. Every single toy we own and then just like march like it was a production. The genus relationships with andrew and with allen were different because allen andrew with different. I was aware from a very very young age that i do things at allen. Couldn't i was three years younger than him. He and i kind of learned how to walk around the same time he could talk but his speech was really slurred. And so i knew from a very young age that like a lot of people didn't understand what he was saying. But i did like i kind of interpreted for him a lot especially in public so i think there was an awareness on that level lake. He's older than me. But i think i always felt older than him like. I knew that he had a lot of medical stuff. That was very mysterious. He had some seizures and would have to be rushed to the hospital so i i was very aware that like he needed a lot and there was something wrong.

"To actually put real many and support an action behind providing dignified life for all people back in august Just out front of the national assembly. Someone named jonathan marshall whose forty three years old and lizard the disability that requires pretty regular care He moved himself into a prison box. A prison cell and protested the conditions of where he lived which is which was a special day a long term care facility in In quebec city and he raised the the connections between the horrible living conditions that allowed cova to run rampant in long term care in quebec for sure across canada as well but also as being a young man With a family living in the most horrible conditions and it got some coverage in quebec. It didn't really Get coverage outside of quebec but it got coverage kind of in the context of right while we all know that fish days are bad and they all need to be reformed. And it's like. Yeah that like. Sarah is right this whole idea that people need to be institutionalized if they need to have more constant care is so fucked up. It's it's just like it's one more example of how canada really doesn't value People's lives equally and like. Why wouldn't we have a system of fully-funded home-care why wouldn't people have free access to assistive devices. Why do we just allow like the bells and the rodgers and the telesis and the west ends and all of these oltra like a individuals or corporations just take money from us all the time hide their taxes somewhere. I mean news just came out this past week that rivera the largest long-term care of facility operator one of the largest in canada which is owned by the pension board of canada. And so you know. It's directors or pointed by order in council from the prime minister's office or from the cabinet office. I'm not sure which one but they have this elaborate structure in the uk that helps to reduce much taxes. They're paying and this was a study. That was not done by canadian. Researchers it was done by australian researchers and they chose the uk. Even the rivera is a canadian company and Also operates in the united states because the information not even available in canada for their corporate structure. And how much money. They may be dodging paying taxes. And even if they're paying all of their taxes they're not paying more than seven percent of their of ridiculous profits. And so you know this is a. This is an issue that cuts to the core of what happens when capitalism tries to organize a society. And it's really. It's really funny in a funny hallway. that the liberals are so hell bent in making sure that it just continues to get worse for the most marginalized under the cover that it will be be be good news for people who are not marginalized and you know and this is where the mvp needs to fucking get clue because the voted for the for the legislation as well. And you know. There's debate happening now within the epa. I don't know if they'll have a free vote but one of the biggest proponents of this legislation as a p. m. p. and In the block will likely support it too. So it'll be interesting to see what happens but like the federal liberals could have invoked the notwithstanding clause and left the bill unconstitutional and imperfect and tried to give themselves maybe more time with an unconstitutional piece of legislation.
